McKibbin Media Group Announces Entertainment for 2nd Annual Fall Fest & Chili Classic | WKHM-AM

Jackson, Michigan- K105.3’s Fall Fest & Chili Classic, presented by Tripp’s Collision, Bud Light, County National Bank and Monster Motors, will return for its second year to Michigan Ave. in Downtown Jackson on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from noon to 8:30 a.m.

With the event fast approaching, McKibbin Media Group (MMG) is pleased to announce its live entertainment lineup for the fall occasion.

The main stage, sponsored by Harvest Solar, will feature a local blues musician Kevin Nichols from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. during the Chili Classic. Your generation in concert will headline the festival this year from 6:30-8:30 p.m., followed by a fireworks display in the heart of downtown Jackson courtesy of Tripp’s Collision.

Your Generation in Concert is an 8-piece band celebrating five decades of pop, rock, dance and R&B success. All musical performances that take place during Fall Fest & Chili Classic are free.

New for 2022 is the addition of a second stage where acoustic performances will take place throughout the day at Bucky Harris Park by country artists Todd Michael and Pete Johnson, Kaylyn Pace, Whiskey and Wine, and Fall Fest ’21 Returning Artist Jason Cross. The Power Cow Stage, named after McKibbin Media Group country music station 95.9 The Power Cow, is sponsored by Monster Motors.

“Having live entertainment in downtown Jackson for this event is important, so we felt it was necessary to add more music to the 2022 event based on feedback from our listeners and sponsors. Having an accomplished band like Your Generation headlining Fall Fest and the Chili Classic will be wonderful and will add a country music/Power Cow scene with local talent this year. [some now living in Nashville] will give the event even more music for the enjoyment of customers. It’s going to be a fun, music-filled day,” said Katina McKibbin, President and Owner of McKibbin Media Group.

The festival, which is free, consists of a chili contest that anyone can participate in, a variety of vendors, free activities for children including a petting zoo and pony rides, live music performances all throughout the day and fireworks. Applications for the Chile Competition are now being accepted.
